We remodeled this 5,400-square foot, 3-story Mediterranean home on Manhattan Beach’s Second Street to give it a more current feel, with cleaner lines and textures. The result is more Santa Barbara and less Old World Europe, which is exactly what we were going for. We worked with much of the client’s existing furniture, which has a southern coastal flavor, compliments of its former South Carolina home. This was an additional challenge, because we had to integrate a variety of influences in an intentional and cohesive way.
We painted nearly every surface white in the 5-bed, 6-bath home, and added light-colored window treatments, which brightened and opened the space. Additionally, we replaced all the light fixtures for a more integrated aesthetic. Well-selected accessories help pull the space together, infusing a consistent sense of peace and comfort.
“We moved into a house built by White Sands and love the choices that were made and quality of construction. Brett and his crew have been great in continuing our journey to understand, as well as amend, interior elements. Hawlie designed the interior, revamping from a Hollywood vibe to a contemporary coastal style.
We are really pleased with them on every front. Brett is wonderful at responding in a timely manner with quality solutions. He is straightforward in setting expectations and doesn’t finish any project until you, his client, are happy and satisfied.”

“The folks at White Sands did a great job for us. We’ve built three homes and this was by far our best experience. We were relaxed during construction because we believed they were looking out for us, and they did. The outcome was terrific. Just what we hoped for. These are a talented group of professionals.”
“I’ve been working in collaboration with the team at White Sands Design Build for the past 2 years, and I have nothing but good news to report. Experienced and organized Project Managers, structured and realistic timelines / budgets, and outstanding inner office support staff.
White Sands is a General Contractor that other Contractors (such as myself) prefer to work with. I’ve referred them plenty of business & plan on continuing to do so moving forward.”
“We work with dozens of builders all over the South Bay and LA. White Sands is one of the best. They have an excellent project management team and we are able to work together seamlessly. Highly recommended!”
